Lil Wayne on Black Lives Matter: ‘My life matters…especially to my b*tches’
A “Dateline” interview with Lil Wayne is going viral after he responded to questions about the Black Lives Matter movement by asking, “What do you mean?”
“What is it? What do you mean?” the rapper asked when he was questioned his thoughts on the movement. “That just sounds weird. I don’t know that you put a name on… It’s not a name. It’s not whatever, whatever. It’s somebody got shot by a policeman, for a f***ed up reason.”
He then continued, “I am a young Black rich motherf***a, if that don’t let you know that America understands Black motherf***as matter these days, I don’t know what it is.”
He was then asked if he felt connected to the Black Lives Matter movement, to which he replied, “I don’t feel connected to a damn thing.”
“My life matter,” he said. “Especially to my b****es.”
He did change his tune a bit, though, when he pulled out a red bandana and claimed allegiance to the Bloods. “I’m connected to this ******* flag right here,” he said. “I’m a gangbanger.”
“I’m connected,” he said as he stood to leave.
